Why do we need interprofessional education and collaborative practice?
- Inconsistent patient and health consumer journeys and outcomes
- A global health workforce crisis emphasised by retention issues and burnout
- A fragmented, inequitable and inefficient health care system
- Shifting regulation requiring collaborative practice ready graduates and health care workers
And an indisputable evidence base that interprofessional education and collaborative practice makes a difference.
How the CPC will support collaborative practice
Our collaborative curriculum
We aim to develop students who are "ready to collaborate" with patients, families, communities and other health professionals.
Our research informs and leads our practice
We actively contribute to national and international collaborative practice innovation and dissemination through research projects, grants, awards, conference presentations and publications.
Our centre is grounded in principles of co-design and collaboration. We partner with people lived experience, communities, organisations and health services to work together on embedding collaborative practice solutions to improving practice and outcomes.
From around the world and across many health backgrounds, meet the team of dedicated staff of the Collaborative Practice Centre.
